Low AMH

I have asked many questions, searched medical resources, and poured through fertility clinics’ websites. As far as I understand, AMH, the Anti Mullerian Hormone, relates to ovarian reserve – quantity of eggs, response to fertility drugs, and chances of a natural, healthy pregnancy. There appear to be at least two different scales for AMH: from 0-6.8 ng/ml and from 0-48.5 pmol/L. There are also differing opinions on what is determined as low AMH or normal. If you have another AMH scale, post to let me know! I’m intrigued to find out.

I am in the process of understanding the diagnosis of Low AMH. I am also trying acupuncture, herbs, diet, and abdominal massage because I was told there were no treatments to improve low AMH.

Stick with me and I’ll share anything I come across!

    Thanks for this blog. I just found it today. I am 34 and have been TTC for 2 years. A few weeks ago, I was diagnosed with low AMH. My level is .17, and a second test came back with a level of .29. My antral follicle count is completely normal, as are my other hormone levels. I have had three miscarriages and after begging my clinic to perform every test they can think of to determine a cause, they finally came up with this one – a little late in my opinion. I have received conflicting information about whether low AMH affects egg quality – my RE says there is only evidence to suggest it affects egg quantity – yet my follicle counts are normal, which it sounds like yours are too? I am planning to visit two doctors for second opinions – Dr. Davis at Cornell and Dr. Stephenson at Univ. of Illinois, the latter of whom specializes in recurrent pregnancy loss. I will continue to follow your blog and will share anything I learn.

    I wish you all the best, Lucy

      Hi Lucy! Yes, with all of our “normal” test results in every other area, it’s difficult to figure out how the AMH relates only to quantity and not quality. I certainly will look forward to hearing about your second opinions. Thanks for sharing your story and I wish

        you

      all the best, too!
